Detail from photo above:

I got curious about the very pretty building that was once a Rompage's location...

5542 Hollywood Blvd

LATimes July 10, 1927

Not sure of its various other tenants over the years, but at one point Lester's School of Ventriloquism was in the building—apparently Edgar Bergen took brush-up classes there.
